Football NSW joins with NSW Health for weekend vaccination blitz


Football NSW is joining forces with NSW Health for a vaccination blitz this Sunday. 

Stuart Hodge is the CEO of Football NSW and encourages football enthusiasts to “do their bit” and get vaccinated this weekend. 

“Make an appointment and then attend wearing your club colours or favourite football jersey,” Hodge says in a press release. 

“We as a sport want to make a difference to help get back to playing and by supporting this initiative and by pushing up vaccination rates it will get us a step closer to enjoying our beautiful game once more.”

‘Sport Super Sundays’ are being held at vaccination centres for Sydney’s twelve local government areas of concern this weekend. 

NSW Health encourages those aged 16 to 39 who live in the Bayside, Blacktown, Burwood, Campbelltown, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Georges River, Liverpool, Parramatta, Strathfield or Penrith areas to make a booking. 

“Wear team uniforms, colours, or gear and take a selfie to post on your local club sites with the hashtag #vaccinationchampion,” NSW Health says. 

“Every person who gets vaccinated is making a difference and will help get us all back to sport sooner.” 

NSW Deputy Secretary Susan Pearce calls on all sports enthusiasts to help break a new vaccination record this Super Sunday. 

“Sporting codes will go head-to-head to compete for the NSW Vaccination Championship Cup and know that they are doing the best thing for their health, and the health of their community,” Ms Pearce said.

“Previous Super Sundays helped vaccinate more than 10,000 supermarket and food industry workers, construction workers and university students in one day, but now it’s time for you to step up for your favourite team or sport.” 

Vaccination centres at Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney Olympic Park, and Macquarie Fields, are available for bookings.

You can book your vaccination appointment by calling 1800 571 155.
